The Gaudi House Museum was the home of the genius himself for two decades in his wonderland Park Güell of Barcelona, Spain. Today it showcases Antoni Gaudi’s unique sense of wonder in nature with his designed objects and furniture.
Like the natural world he was inspired by, nothing about Gaudi’s furniture is ridged or symmetrical. The modernist pieces look as if sculpted from soft clay and no two are alike.
It is strangely humbling to see where the genius himself drafted Sagrada Famila. You may just leave inspired for greatness at your desk!
Gaudi's assistant Matamala was instructed to make this molding of Gaudi upon his death. When the cast was pulled, his eyelid stuck to it as if he was winking at his friend.
It’s deeply humanizing to see where Gaudi laid his head to rest each night—little details left unchanged, like his prayer books, make visiting even more personal.
The house is located in one of his masterpieces, Park Guell. Entry is free, so it is usually quite crowded; come at a off-peak time to find a place to relax.
Many wonder if it's worth it to pay an entry fee to experience such a small museum. With a convenient location, after exploring the park it sits in all afternoon, this humble abode may seem a little underwhelming. At a 5,50€ entrance price, the museum is suited for the sentimentalist that wants a personal look into who the artist was and what his life looked like.
Visiting Parc Guell is an absolute must for Barcelona, so you can be spontaneous about visiting the museum—tickets at the door won’t be a problem.

What People Are Saying About Gaudi House Museum
Relaxing and beautiful at the same time. 10 minutes walk from Metro if you know your way.
The sun came out which made the experience even better! Despite the crowds, it was very calm and easy-going!
Work of art of Antonio Gaudi - buildings, bench and resting area underneath, garden and splendid idea of the whole housing estate in Barcelona! The only thing we didn't enjoy was the expensive and not very tasty coffee and ice-cream in the shop of Park Guel. We liked that the Gaudi House museum was for free and we didn't have to book in advance, but there was a quite long waiting time and exhibition inside wasn't as rewarding as we thought it will be (some TV presentations and programs weren't even on, so just empty rooms?) Also if you have children with you, we recommend (as we did), to take a taxi (or bus) up the steep hill leading to Park GUELL and they'll enjoy more the Park itself. The view from the bench is UNFORGETTABLE!!!
Because if road works below the park after getting off blue line hop on hop off bus, ask directions to walkup to entrance.
At first, I thought I booked it for a very early hour (9am). But it was a very good timing, as it was so hot in Barcelona that between 9 and 11am we had the chance to enjoy everything before it got too hot for me and my child. Loved it, it's a utopia meeting real life.
